I have not listened to it, but apparently Coolio talks about Al and Amish Paradise in a podcast called the Chris Brake Show Podcast. Info article

Don't know if it's the same interview but I just stumbled across Coolio explaining his side of the story with Amish Paradise.

Driew sighting ZOMG

Has anyone ever asked Coolio what he thought of "Amish Paradise" as a parody? We all know that he eventually came around (and now even says it was stupid to turn it down) but I don't think I've ever heard him comment on whether or not he liked the song.

I agree, though I have to say it's nice to see that he's now fully, completely changed his point of view about it and admits he was totally in the wrong.

I was 10 years old when that feud was going on, and it was right after I started listening to Weird Al. Coolio was one of the biggest villains I had during that time of my life. I'm glad he's used his years of obscurity to reflect on career mistakes. As I recall, this "controversy" did bleed over into the mainstream and Coolio (and Al) had a few days of bad press because of it. I don't doubt that Coolio now realizes his attitude about Amish Paradise made him seem decidedly less gangsta, and it contributed to his fall from fame.

And when Al takes his Amish hat off during the song, we see his Coolio hair sticking up! Why am I just noticing this NOW?

Congrats! That was your 27th post! I imagine it's your attention to detail that has not allowed you to notice it until now.

After a few years of constant listening, I suddenly realised I have absolutely no idea what "hitching up a buggy" means :wacko:
